For those of you loyal followers please don't give up hope on me finishing this one. There have been a few problems recently that have been over come and I should be full steam ahead again. I'm seeing what troubles I come up against fitting these dellorto carbs today. Looks like the tank will need to be modified. Thank you again for looking.

Oh my days.  Full frontal porn so early in the morning!
I was born a rocker.  I'll die a rocker.  And I'm proud of it.

Looking good Brian!
I also got a bit further with my bike. Hope to get the top ends bolted on this weekend and start putting the timing side parts back again.

A picture of a the primary cover just hanging in the belt.
The outside of the pulley is now only sticking out about 17 mm (2/3").

Perfect solution to the messy stock clutch.

To make room for the dynamo belt pulley it is only about 2,5 mm (1/10") material left on the primary cover behind the lower side of the dynamo cover.

Hello Buellingvincent ,
Glad your making headway.
The space you have looks great. I've had to make up 26 mm spacers to get clearance on the belt for now. I've ground away a lot of the primary cover also.
My next task is to remove some of the fuel tank for clearance on the front carb.
Then run the oil return lines and fuel taps and lines.
THEN think about firing it up!!!!!
I bet there are a few followers that wish I just got in and had it running. I'm keen too. ha ha
Cheers
Brian

Thanks Brian,
You have a 40 mm wide belt if a remember. I believe that one will never fit under the cover without a spacer. I have a 30 mm belt and had to squeeze it in.

Good luck with the tank Brian!

The top end is on. Time to move over to the timing side!

Been working intensely for a few days as we have an extra long weekend (bank holiday and bridge day) in Sweden this week.

Went through the primary side a last (!) time and sealed with various Loctites. First, the gearbox internals had to go out again as the gear change was rough. Had to round off the tip of the selector pawl. After mounting the selector pawl plug G37 it fouled the clutch belt wheel and I had to lower the G37 to make it work (first time I had that on while testing with the belt primary).

Have since then assembled the timing side main parts. Will fix pushrods+rockers today and then start setting the timing.
Much more fun to assemble than repairing and modifying parts.
